Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

A - Cloudy white pour with a yellow tint. There is some lacing noted on the glass. Foam is a frothy white that retains pretty well.

S - Spicy notes of corriander and ginger lie above a citrusy smell of oranges. Some scent of light grain is present.

T - Initial tartness of orange is faded by a pronounced spice flavor. Actually I think it is a bit too much. But the notes are all there and a crisp taste of wheat rounds this out.

M - Easily sessionable and great for the warmer months. Balance is solid (again the corriander could tone done a notch) and minimal carbonation.

O - Not sure if this still the leader of the style but clearly a solid beer. A perfect beer to show those breaking in to craft beer that even the lighter styles can be eye opening.

Cloudy, white ale with a foamy head that dissipated quickly. Left a slight lacing on the glass. Had a nice clean aroma where the spices really came through with a light fruity note in the background. Tasted matched the aroma only the citrus was more prominent. Overall this is a great, prototypical witbier that everyone can appreciate.
